Sanctuary & therapeutic connection

The Berkshire Animal Connection Centre (BACC) provides a sanctuary to animals, and a safe space for people to benefit from therapeutic interaction with them.

Sanctuary

The majority of our animals come to us unwanted, abused or abandoned. We provide them with an environment that allows them to thrive naturally under our care for the rest of their lives.

Equine Assisted Services

The calming natures of the animals at BACC can support people suffering from a range of emotional, mental, physical and social problems. Building relationships with our animals enables therapeutic healing and wellbeing, under the guidance of qualified facilitators. In 2024, we will expand the Charitable Objectives to include our long-awaited vision of offering Equine Assisted Services (EAS).
